Mike and Melissa lost their home to the fire in Fort McMurray. They would never ask for help so I'm doing it for them. They have two small children Beckam (4 years) and Ryan (4 months ) that have nothing but a suitcase with a few days worth of clothes. When they were told to evacuate they had no idea that they would lose their home. Please donate anything you can, no amount is too small.
Apparently there were some questions regarding the validity of this account so I just want to clarify some things. I wanted this to be about Mike and Melissa but apparently gofundme is requiring me to state these things. I met Mike and Melissa when Mike began playing professional hockey in 2004. Mike played for the Greenville Grrrowl which is in my home town of Greenville, SC. Melissa and I became friends quickly as she was a 17 year old in a new city with no friends. Throughout the years my family has traveled to over 10 different cities to see Mike play and I've also visited them in their home town of Water Valley. As soon as Melissa told me they had lost their home to the wild fires I knew I needed to do something. Because of our distance the best thing was to raise money for them to purchase clothes, food and the basic necessities they no longer have. If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me through here. I appreciate the donations we've received so far but I'm hoping to exceed my original goal. I know the cost of living is much higher in Canada and I know this money won't go far when you have nothing and no income. If you want to see the devastation for yourself I'm posting a video of Mike's vehicle and where their home once stood.
